Give Me Your Answer, Do!

Irish playwright Brian Friel (Dancing at Lughnasa) is adept at rounding up dysfunctional characters. In Do!, about a semi-successful novelist (John Glover), Friel covers alcoholism, kleptomania, familial relationships, and autism. It’s a brutally sad drama, but you’ll stop short of trying to impale yourself on an armrest, thanks to Friel’s elegant language and the cast’s uniformly excellent performances. Glover, Joel Grey, and Lois Smith are tender and convincing. Kate Burton, as the novelist’s boozy wife, is no less than luminous. B+
